I’m planning to de-rust an old Stanley plane tonight using some Evaporust that I just received. The instructions on the Evaporust website say to “rinse and wash” the piece after removing it from the Evaporust bath. Can anyone tell me what I should be using to “wash” the plane parts with? Is water enough, or do I need something else? I am planning to apply some sort of rust inhibitor (T-9 maybe?) after I have it all cleaned, but I don’t know if I need to just rinse it, or if some sort of washing with another product is needed.

I’ve never used Evaporust but most other rust removers have you rinse it off with water. Be sure to dry it thoroughly.

I rinse with water, a lot of water. Then shake it dry followed by a thorough dowsing with WD-40. The WD 40 displaces any existing water (water displacer is what WD stands for) . After the good spraying with WD40 I usually let it sit for a couple of minutes (to make sure the water if fully displaced, then wipe it with a rag or paper towel to get the excess off.

I’m pretty sure Evaporust is a water based product so a thourough rinsing with just water should be suffiicient.
